"How To Write A Damn
Good Story Online"
It was about 4pm on a Thursday and I was on a giddy high.
I’d just been cast as a servant girl in an updated version of “Romeo & Juliet.” (Pretty shabby rendition but then again, who remakes Shakespeare?)
My girlfriend, who also auditioned, didn’t get cast. (What was her name again?) I drove the two of us to the audition and on the way home, the energy from the passenger side was a little chilly.
But to me, the trees waved congratulations in the breeze. The air smelled a little cleaner. My scalp was actually tingly.
Then just like that, it all changed.
At the intersection of Sunshine Terrace & Laurel Canyon a car made a left in front of us.
SLAM! CRUNCH! SHATTER! (Insert more “Batman” sounds here.)
My dirty Datsun had had its last bath. It was totaled.
Fortunately my friend (what WAS her name?) and I were able to walk away with only soft tissue damage.
In the weirdest way you could say that car accident birthed my company, Red Hot Copy.
See I ended up marrying my lawyer and having two sons with him. And I ultimately built my business so I could raise them from home while still working after we divorced.
What about you?
How do you get into your business? Do you have a story inside waiting to get out? Of course you do!
Let your inner storyteller come out & play…
Ever since we were cave folks gathered around the campfire, swapping tales of our heroic wins (and our humiliating losses), story has been important in our world. To survive harsh environments the human brain categorizes everything. It’s constantly scanning the world for commonalities. So when a story is told, the natural response is for humans to apply that story to their own experiences. Get it? Stories create instant bonds and spark emotional connection. Stories also boost your credibility. To move people into action, you need a good story. But it takes practice to crank out captivating tales.
Stories can RIVET your audience…
when you know what you’re doing…
We all know how to tell stories. You’re a natural. Really you are.
Some people are a little better at it though. And that’s no accident.
Something gets triggered in those people.
It could be partly genetics. It might be that they’re astute observers. Or it could be they learned to repeat the patterns of story that makes their audience eager to lap up their next detail.
Today more than ever stories are the gems that get your writing noticed. I’m talking about all kinds of writing...blogs, emails, even your book promotions. There’s just too much competition for attention for us to take it all in.
